Message Undertook to De

Geneva. May 25 (AP)— Great Bri
tain opposed any hard and fast de
finition of an aggressor -nation a.t to
day* se?s on of the disarmament con
ference! contending that such a de
finition would be only a trap for the
innocent and protection for the guilty
This position was explained by Cap
tain Anthony Eden, the British re-,
present a i ive, who insisted that it was
necessary to know the background of
each case of aggression in order to
determine the responsible party.
'The doctrine that any nation which
sent troops to the territory of an
o<her country was an aggressor was
set forth in President Roosevelt's re
cent international peace message.
Subsequently it was amplif.ed by
Norman H. Davis, the American re
presentative at Geneva.)
United States Ambassador Norman
H Davis voiced regret at the dis
armament conference today that
Japan has proposed to delete any
reference to the London and Wash*
